With all the carbon that BC and Alberta have been pumping into the atmosphere from burning our forests you'd better prepare for the apocalypse.  Hopefully you guys living in the banana belt out there won't get snow this winter.   ::) ;D

The elk are rutting now.  They have had snow in town.  Pretty cold at night and some foggy mornings.  Watch for bears both black and grizzly.  There was a grizzly in Whistlers Campground in May at less than 50 yards from our site.  I think it was going after elk calves at the bottom of the mountain.

I was hoping the rut was still active and bears weren't hibernating yet.I am going for a couple nights during the Dark Sky festival ,hopefully get some decent wildlife pics during the day then.

The bears won't den up for a while yet but they are eating like crazy right now. 
We were watching the meteor shower around August 12 this summer from the new parking lot for Valley of the Five Lakes.
The bulls were bugling still on the 11th of September and rushing around all lathered up.  It should go on until then.  There was one large bull in the campground trying to wrangle up the cows.

At 9:00 a.m. this morning -35C and -44C WC.  No suspension because it's frozen and I don't care that there is a snowflake on a mountain on the sidewall; nothing grips when it's this freakin' cold!   :'(

Foggy in Vancouver this week.  I have had to line up my tankers to get them through during a very short clear period.  A royal pain in the ass dealing with low visibility.

What, no bumper tanker!   :D  That's no fun!  Then we could find out how good their oil recovery plan is in reality.

Crazy day at Whistler today. 58cm's overnight, which after snowing all morning turned to 80cm's in the previous 24hrs. When the snow stopped there was sun and blue sky, unbelievable!

Mount Washington on the island saw 80cm's overnight, too much for the hill to open.

It made the national news here too.  What a dump of snow.  At Mammoth Mountain in California they would have you leave your keys at the desk of the hotel so they could clear the parking if it dumped like that while you were up at the hill.  The pictures reminded me of there. 
My dream was to get marooned at a hill and unable to leave for several days due to the roads being closed.  Came close a couple of times but never realized it!

When I was there in late December, years back, they had over 7 feet of snow.
